This article reports that the cinema is a true spiritual automaton that would be a machinism reducible neither to the human nor to the machine. This is the psychological automaton, in the sense of a profoundly divided essence of the psyche, even though it is not at all psychological in the sense that this division would be interpreted as a state of the non-machine individual. The new spiritual automaton of a possible cinema of the digital image would be a machinism that confounds the distinction on which cybernetics is based on a machinism identifiable neither with the human nor with the machine, and on a machinism that is without an original.
